European scenarios on transport - energy - environment for metropolitan areas

Objective



Objectives

Integrating available macroeconomic and urban models with land use models to assess impacts on transportation and analyzing the downstream chain transportation - energy - emissions - dispersions. The aim is to provide local government, civic groups, private and public planners with a set of tools fit to analyze the consequences of plans and policy decisions to optimise/improve existing urban and suburban situations - as illustrated in section 3 below.

Technical Approach

Existing macro and micro models are reviewed and integrated to analyze future prospects of the chain: socio-economic conditions - land use - transportation supply/demand (disaggregated public/private and different modes) - energy use - emissions output and dispersions and their monitoring. A co-operative effort of participants is carried out to integrate different models and make them compatible with each other, more significant, apt to produce better forecast and policy assessments.
Expected Achievements and Exploitation

Validation of models chains based on application of data collections, surveys and mathematical models to actual situations in: Rome, London, Brussels, Lyon. Tools produced and/or refined usable for impact and sensitivity analysis of policies: industrial and business, land use and regulation, traffic disciplines and investment in infrastructures, public transport, technology developments of low or zero emission engines and possible enforcement of their adoption.

Scenarios produced in different hypotheses of tomorrow's car features and future acceptance and adoption, will be assessed in more detailed and realistic ways. This will produce a feedback to be used in computing cost/benefit assessments and forecasting penetration of different models of tomorrow's car in European marketplaces.
